The Wyoming Legislature's Management Council will meet Oct. 15 to consider a request to pay for an attorney and others to help the state House in its investigation into Superintendent Cindy Hill.
Council Chairman Senator Tony Ross says the meeting is to vote on the budget request of the Select Investigative Committee to provide for special counsel and other contractors determined necessary by the committee as it looks into allegations against the state superintendent of public instruction.
The special committee is investigating Hill's administration of the Wyoming Education Department before she was removed by a new state law earlier this year. Hill has denied any wrongdoing.
The news is coming in from The Associated Press. According to the report, the management council will not be taking public testimony during the meeting.
